Pentecost Sunday

The Day of Pentecost is the fiftieth and last day of the Easter Season, when the church received the gift of the Holy Spirit (Acts 2).

Rev. Dr. Kathryn Woodrow preaching, "Today's Weather: Wind, Fire, and Floods"

Scriptures:  Acts 2:1-21; Romans 8:22-27; John 15:26-27, 16:4b-15

Please wear RED to worship today to celebrate Pentecost!  The color red signifies the power and presence of the Holy Spirit which came upon the believers on the Day of Pentecost, which is considered the "birthday" of the church.

Pray for our world (from the Ecumenical Prayer Cycle):  Botswana, Zimbabwe



Summer at Faith, June 21-August 30, 2015

Our 8:45am casual worship service will move outdoors to Chapel in the Woods.  As is our tradition, many Sundays the worship service will be led by laity.  These services are always faith-filled and refreshing, so come and join us!

We will continue to hold our 10:00am traditional service in the Sanctuary.

Our Sunday School will transform into a One-Room Sunday School for children who are currently in the Preschool through 5th grade classes, which will be held in Rooms 206 & 203.  Youth classes will not be held in the summer, and the youth are invited to join in the worship services at either 8:45am or 10:00am.

The Nursery will continue to be held from 8:30am to 11:30am, with the nursery rooms combined under the care of Tessa Ricketts & Brittany Johnson.
